So today marked a collabo of sorts as it was the start of a new month and also the start of the 2nd quarter of our radio show, Family Funtime With Aunty Bimbo, FFAB!
My heart is full of gratitude to God for taking the show thus far and not making me a "one hit wonder" despite the struggle to get sponsors on the show.
I took a major risk becoming an Independent Producer of my own radio show and though it comes with so many challenges I won't have it any other way as God leads me through.
The feedback continues to be awesome and I remain a work in continuous improvement with the optimism that the issue of corporate sponsors will come to pass in a BIG way soon.
Because the month of April is Child Abuse Awareness month, we'll be having Child Abuse Expert come on the show every Saturday this month.
Our first expert on today's edition was Florence Karl Ogwu. She is a prolific author and illustrious speaker. Popularly referred to as FLO, she is a lead figure in sex education ,sexual abuse prevention, Girl child advocacy and a family life practitioner.
Unfortunately we had quite a number of children call in who have been abused and yet to get over it psychologically. A 12 year old called in who was abused when she was 8 years old by her brother who is now in the university.
Another girl aged 14 called in to say how she was constantly abused by a neighbor from when she was 9 and is now a mother! I can go on with the messages we also got via Watsap and it was a very shocking reality.
Prevention they say is better than cure, pls let's create an awareness in our children. Also let's realise that Child Abuse is often time carried out by someone the child or family knows and trusts....you just have to be watchful!
For anyone with questions or issues about Child Sexual Abuse or you need counselling either for a child or even an adult that has gone through this and needs help, you can reach FLO via Watsapp: 0802 553 7820
Shout out to all those who listened in or joined via Facebook Live, y'all make every sacrifice of this show worth it and I appreciate you all!!
